People of Swish : Sofy Rahman
Swish | 16 January, 2023
By now, I’m very sure you would have attended one of our many monthly webinars or on-site events. Sofy is one of the powerhouses behind the events, meetups and collaborations held exclusively for our awesome Swish users. Sofy is also mastermind behind the monthly leaderboard, making sure the our sweet rewards go to deserving users.
We managed to catch up with Sofy for a quick Q&A, where she shares with us some of her favourite lunch spots around the area and her life outside of work.
Where can we uncover the hidden side of you when you're not busy working away?
As a working mother, my days are often filled with the responsibilities of both work and family.
While I used to enjoy leisurely activities like chilling at cafes and live music events, those have become a rarity with a young child at home. When I’m not at the office, you can usually find me and my 4-year-old son at home playing with Lego and Brainflakes, or at indoor playgrounds and enjoying nature walks at Telok Blangah Hill Park and Henderson Waves.
We also love exploring the neighbourhood on his scooter, whether it’s in Sentosa or around our estate. In my limited free time, I enjoy catching up on my favorite K-dramas, catching up with friends on Instagram, and online shopping. Motherhood keeps me busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What are some of your top picks for food around Bugis?
Haji Lane is a true mecca for food-lovers! You’ve got to try Piedra Negra or the classic fish soup down Beach Road. Delish!
For those who are in a hurry, there’s definitely Dosirak and Poke Theory just downstairs for quick lunch runs (I am crazy about salmon by the way). Feeling a bit daring? Take the plunge and cross the bridge that leads straight to foodie paradise, Suntec City!
What do you love about working in SPECTRUM?
Being surrounded by nothing less than the most remarkable people on Earth, particularly Yvonne and Michelle, the ever-amiable concierge ladies at the front.
These two and the rest of the SPECTRUM team have poured so much of themselves into ensuring SPECTRUM runs like clockwork and, naturally, into cultivating a truly wonderful community. It’s a space that was crafted with every possible detail in mind.
🎬 That’s a wrap! If you’re ever looking for someone to bond over K-drama or exchange parenting tips, don’t forget that Sofy is just a Swish away!
